RF Microneedling Reduces Aging Lines And Wrinkles

Reduce Aging Lines And Wrinkles

RF Microneedling Reduces Aging Lines And WrinklesRF microneedling is a type of minimally invasive procedure that can effectively rejuvenate the skin appearance by diminishing fine lines and wrinkles. The technique combines the element of radiofrequency energy with traditional microneedling procedure.

RF pulse is carried deep within the dermis through fractional technique that helps in reducing acne scars and enhances skin tightening. It also stimulates the production of both elastin and collagen. There is minimal damage in the upper skin layers, which means marginal downtime.

Board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Suzanne Quardt (Dr. Q) provides RF microneedling treatment for the reduction of aging lines and wrinkles to patients in Palm Springs, Palm Desert, Rancho Mirage, Beverly Hills, CA, and surrounding locations.

Advantages of Radiofrequency Microneedling

RF microneedling is the perfect solution for all types of skin concerns. These are a few benefits of radiofrequency microneedling therapy:

  • Reduces fine lines and wrinkles
  • Improves skin texture and tone
  • Tightens and rejuvenates the skin
  • Reduces skin pigmentation, acne scars, open pores, and stretch marks

Applications of Fractional RF Microneedling

RF microneedling is suitable for all types of skin and offers a wide array of benefits. It can treat the following:

  • Wrinkles, fine lines, and saggy skin
  • Inflammatory acne scars, especially box scars, and rolling scars
  • Minor hypertrophic scars from vaccination, acne, burns, and chickenpox
  • Stretch marks
  • Dull complexion
  • Large open pores

RF Microneedling Procedure

The treatment provider may apply a numbing gel at the target are before you get the microneedling treatment performed. This will be done to help you keep comfortable and prevent any discomfort or pain. They will use advanced equipment on the skin by gently pressing it.

This will ensure the needle tips can deposit radiofrequency pulses at the desired depth. Depth of penetration is controlled by the skin specialist for enhanced precision. They will continue the process till desirable results are achieved.

Fractional RD Scar Treatment vs. Laser Therapy

Radiofrequency energy waves are used in RF microneedling procedure for heating collagen. These waves flow from the electrodes positioned at the skin surface. There is less impedance in heat flowing through the skin. The procedure has an added benefit of collagen and elastin stimulation, which further tightens the skin.

Highly focused beam is used in laser therapy. It converts into thermal or heat energy to break down and remodel the scars. Over time, the scars begin healing.

Is the Procedure Painful?

RF microneedling therapy is the least painful procedure for wrinkle reduction. Lighter settings don’t require numbing gel as well. However, your treatment provider may still use it to avoid discomfort.

Number of Sessions Required

Majority of patients require 3 – 5 sessions of RF microneedling spread over a period of 6 months for visible results. The number of sessions you get depends on the treatment response.

Severity of condition and the type of skin you have will determine the time interval between individual sessions. Your skin care expert may suggest coming in after every 4 – 6 weeks for optimal results.
